Be part of our team!
The Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts has launched a new volunteer program to support the front of house department. We’re looking for enthusiastic people with a passion for the performing arts to volunteer in our front of house positions.
We currently have the following volunteer roles available:
- Ticket Taker
- Outreach Ambassador
- Coat Check Attendant [currently no positions available for coat check]
**Please note, our volunteer season runs September to June and our 2015/2016 season is almost complete. Any applications received after May 24, 2016 will be added to our potential volunteer list for the 2016/2017 season. Selected applicants will be contacted in August for interviews.**
We love our volunteers!
OCPA volunteer ushers and coat check attendants provide invaluable services by assisting patrons to their seats, answering questions, checking valuables, and most importantly, creating a pleasant and welcoming environment for our patrons.
The OCPA strives to be a destination for lovers of music, drama, comedy and dance. As an OCPA volunteer you will be a valued contributor to the performing arts community in Oakville. Help us make the magic happen! Opportunities are available for everyone (16 years old and up) looking to become part of a fun and exciting team!
